The Dower House occupies a good sized plot. The garden is attractively landscaped and is sunny and very private.

The accommodation comprises a large open plan living room which incorporates a sitting area and dining area. There is a lovely bespoke Henry Gordon Jones kitchen/breakfast room and a fabulous, large family bathroom. The master bedroom has a very smart en-suite shower room.

Properties of this nature are becoming increasingly difficult to find in villages like Snape and we would strongly recommend an early appointment to view.

The property is also within walking distance of three excellent pubs and restaurants. The village has a shop, a garage and petrol station and its own primary school. The attractions of the Heritage Coast lie within reach by car and include the seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold, Orford which is famous for its ancient castle and quay and the nearby market town of Saxmundham which has a railway station and Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets. There are wonderful nature reserves in this part of Suffolk including RSPB Minsmere. Aldeburgh and Thorpeness have golf courses and there are sailing clubs on the rivers Alde/Ore, Deben and Orwell.
